Qualification Rules
Qualification will be based on world ranking as of 11 July 2016, with a total of 60 players qualifying in each of the men's and women's events.[8] The top 15 players of each gender will qualify, with a limit of four golfers per country that can qualify this way.[9][10] The remaining spots will go the highest-ranked players from countries that do not already have two golfers qualified.[11] The IGF has guaranteed that at least one golfer from the host nation and each geographical region (Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania) will qualify.[10][12] The IGF posts weekly lists of qualifiers based on current rankings for men[13] and women.[14]

Here there is a list with reserves.List Of Rio Golf Women Qualifiers.
I don't know how Aditi is second reserve for Many of the players....

Congrats Aditi!

She is second on alternate list for players from countries with less than 2 players! so if the player from USA drops out, she will not get in as there are number of higher ranked players from US that are ahead of her! On the other hand if player from IRL, PAR, mex were to withdraw, she has a chance to get in! If u see she is alternate no. 3 for player from NED as there are three players from NED ranked higher (two of them qualified and third is the first alternate)!

Aditi has plenty of time (till July 2016) to move up the world rankings and directly qualify. I think a good showing in a couple of tournaments on the European tour should move her into the top 400 which appears to be good enough at this point.

@Kumar Welcome back.
